' F R A N K L I N H A L L - \ : I 1 FAREWELL TO SMITTY'S APR IL 2 7 , 1 9 9 4 - 1 : 3 4 A . M . As I sit here it's hard to believe the semester is al­ most over. Three months ago I was asked to write this and I am just now getting around to it. Procras­ tination? M a y b e . . This early in the morning might seem a little extreme but around Currier Hall the morning hours are the most productive. The building is almost quiet, but not quite. If I listen I can still hear faint music and hear the occasional door slam. During finals week there is always someone awake, in a caffeine abused state, sucking down lung darts at furious pace, and trying to learn fifteen weeks worth of notes in ten short hours. School life is hard some­ times. On the other hand this place has been the source of many good times that we will all remember in the future. The bad times have a way of mellowing over the years as the good times become more appreciated, (or so I keep telling myself, though af­ ter graduation I may believe it) I remember the coming of “ The Great Pumpkin\ snow, stories of the Hotel Show, the buffet gatherings, the first as­ cent of St. Regis, the snot freezing in my nose, wad­ ing in ice cold water looking for the rare \stick bug\ (Yes King Diptera you shall be remembered!!), and so many more. The “ Open Mike Nights\ at the Baker House will be remembered, cool nights on a lighted soccer field, the good friends, and the many other things I will long remember. 6
